First of all, here’s the past week’s highlights:

N = Netflix Original

13 Reasons Why: Season 3 N

The release of the third season of 13 Reasons Why has been highly anticipated since the climactic cliffhanger of season 2.

15 months on and the third season has finally arrived! After much of the second season was spent trying to take Bryce down and send him to jail, he seemingly was able to get away with his crimes after Chloe helped lie on his behalf. Bryce’s victory is short-lived though as someone has carried vigilante justice and murdered the high-schooler. But who killed Bryce Walker? Clay is immediately the main suspect, but the list of suspects is vast, with each individual having their own reasons for wanting Bryce Walker dead.


Love Alarm: Season 1 N

Originally, Love Alarm was the first Korean series ordered by Netflix. Now the fourth title in the growing list of excellent Netflix Originals from Korea, Love Alarm will be the perfect watch for all you K-Drama fans out there.

In an increasingly digitalized age so too do our love lives. When an unknown developer releases a dating app it goes viral in South Korea. The app will tell the user if someone within 10 feet of them has romantic feelings for them, this greatly disrupts day to day life for Jojo. Soon Jojo finds her caught in a love triangle between her childhood friend Jung Ga Ram and Hwang Sun-oh the handsome model.

American Factory: 1 Season N

America the great powerhouse of manufacturing in recent years has struggled against the cheap costs of materials and labor in China. Now in a post-industrial Ohio, in the husk of an old General Motors plant, a Chinese billionaire opens up a new factory, hiring 2000 blue-collar Americans. With the addition of hundreds of Chinese workers, there are plenty of setbacks as high tech China clashes with the working class of America.
